Back in May, Teen Mom OG star Amber Portwood welcomed her second child, a boy named James.
In the weeks that followed, Portwood suffered from severe postpartum depression.
Amber was open about her struggle from the very beginning, but it's only now that fans are beginning to learn just how dire the situation became.
We now know that at one point, Amber's mental illness nearly cost her her life.
Take a look:
Amber has openly discussed her battle with postpartum depression on multiple occasions.
On the recent Teen Mom OG season finale, Amber opened up her to her cousin Krystal about a night when she almost committed suicide.
Amber says she was rescued by husband Andrew Glennon, who sensed something was amiss and refused to leave her alone.
An Unspoken Crisis
Amber told her cousin that Glennon “could feel it," referring to her suicidal impulses.
Sticking By Her Side
“He’s like, ‘I’m not going to bed,’” Portwood recalls Glennon saying.
Her Lowest Point
“It doesn’t feel good to go and do things, it doesn’t feel good to be alive right now," Portwood continued.
